Hi my name is Christian and I am addicted to drifting. Before this summer I only attended two and participated in one drift event my entire life. But after hearing about the Go Fast entertainment’s summer drift events. I told myself I would not miss these! On June 13th of this year, my life changed forever. In this event did I not only participate but I made more new friends in a span of six hours then I had in High School. Something inside me changed, and it was for the good. A novice and shy self just got devoured by a raging beast that hungers for tire screeching, redline motor revving food. With little to no experience drifting, I went for it. Sliding and burning rubber in my BRZ was the most fun I have ever had in a car. At this point though, I really wouldn’t call it [...]
New to Phoenix? I am. Here is my quest for the best driving experience.
By Brian Brawley
Phoenix is quite a large place. Bustling with city life, rural life, night life, and everything in between. No really, there is almost something for everyone here. Being quite new to Phoenix, I was a little short for good drives.
Where I come from, there are two stunning mountain routes just out of arms reach of town, and a nice little square for showing off to all the local tweenagers. I was lost coming down here, as nice, twisty, ribbons of wholesome goodness are quite out of the way, and afternoon traffic is quite the buzzkill. So after a quick little relationship with google maps and inquiry from some local insiders I began the quest for nice cruising routes in the large city. There are more to be found, even more to be covered, but sometime the experience alone [...]
The Huracan, Lamborghini’s successor to its top selling Gallardo, was revealed in March 2014 at the Geneva Motor Show. Who would’ve guessed it would end up helping fight crime, but that’s exactly what happened when Lamborghini decided to donate the Huracan to Italy’s state police. In fact, the new super car is replacing two of its predecessors that were also donated to Italy’s police force in 2004 and 2008.
The donation is to further improve the relationship that Lamborghini has with the Italian police. “We have a strong and fitting relationship with the Italian State Police. The new Lamborghini Huracan stands for Italian super sports car excellence and we are proud to provide it to the Italian State Police to carry out the specialist tasks these police cars undertake,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President [...]
Honda’s S660 concept. S2000 successor? Or the NSX we have been waiting for?
By Brian Brawley
What’s not to love about the Honda S2000? The little bombshell roadster born from Honda was anything but tame. It featured just over 240hp from its scant two liter mill, still holding one of the highest horsepower to liter ratio in a production car. Having a light 2,750 pound curb weight, X-bone frame construction, minimalist driver focused interior, and a screaming 9,000 RPM redline, it gave NSX levels of performance at a more affordable price to the general population. After 10 glorious years, Honda finally closed doors on production with no replacement in sight. With the NSX already dead, it seemed like Honda had closed the door on sports cars in general.
Back in 1995, at the Tokyo Motor Show, Honda [...]
“When I am strapped into the car sitting in the staging lanes I always get butterflies,” Greg Schmidt, age 26, said. “The thoughts going through my head are checklists for the car. Fire suppression system – check, parachute pin pulled – check etc… But then my A.D.D. kicks in and I’ll see a pitbike and think about who is on our four-wheeler and where it’s at. About that time I’m ready to fire off the engine where the solid mounts vibrate 700+ horsepower through the chassis to the aluminum seat where I’m strapped in and the butterflies hit again.”
Schmidt runs a 452 cubic inch big block chevy on VP Race Fuel M5 Methanol also equipped with a 200 shot of spray on a singe kit by Nitrous Outlet. [...]
Across the pond the Brits are showing some contempt with the fact that the Mini is continuing to grow. When the ‘new’ Mini came out at the turn of the century, many Mini enthusiasts thought it was “too German, too big, and not Mini enough.”
When you compare the recently launched third generation Mini to the to the first-gen reborn model back in 2000, you can notice a huge difference on how much bigger the newer model is. It’s not really all that mini anymore.
Naturally, the 2000 model is also much larger than the iconic original mini, but enthusiast can reluctantly tell the designers and engineers did their best to keep its dimensions compact. It’s still smaller than the cars it competes with. It’s quick, handles well, and is like the original [...]
